Philanthropic Advising and Evaluation

The Sojourn Team provides a variety of services to help our clients make the maximum impact with their dollars. Our activities include conducting landscape analyses to identify funding opportunities and gaps, holding in-depth conversations with organizations and coalitions, and sharing strategic feedback based on political expertise and field experience. We advise donors on issues relating to voting rights, pro-democracy movement building, and race and gender equity.

Through our Philanthropic Advising & Evaluation Portfolio we:

  • Strategic Analysis of Issue & Movement Ecosystems: We design and conduct strategic landscape analyses of issue and movement ecosystems to help inform grantmaking and program strategy. We use both qualitative and quantitative analytical approaches to inform our analysis. 
  • Advising on Grantmaking Strategy & Giving: We work with clients to develop grantmaking strategies that help align their goals with measurable and equitable impact. We also provide advice on grant portfolios and philanthropic giving.
